Retro 1951 was started in 1990 by George Kartsotis in Richardson, Texas. His first nice pen was a gift for a job promotion. He recognized the potential of the special gift and to this day he explains, “We’re a gift company. We are selling the accoutrements of life. A pen is not a pen, it’s a vehicle to an end – a way of showing who you are.” Although Retro specializes in fine writing instruments, they also offer leather accessories, games, lifestyle products and “other cool stuff!”
Always on the lookout for the latest trend or newest thing in the market, Retro merges the fashionable colors and designs of today with the vintage and quality standards of ““the good ol’ days.” Every Retro piece is designed with that nostalgic, early American-dream, and it could be best said that “We make ‘em like they used to!”™
